Because that was me this morning. I made fettucine alfredo the other day and I'm not a fan of mixing noodles and sauce together. Call it kitchen OCD (because I have kitchen OCD) or just plain craziness (because, well, I've got that too). So, after my husband was done eating, I had zero sauce left and a bunch of noodles.
And sometime, somewhere, I saw a recipe for lo mein (which I loooooove) using leftover fettucine. Trying to find it, though frustrated the everloving life of out me because 1) everything I found called for stuff I had never heard of and 2) a trip to the grocery to find stuff that I have never heard of gave me a headache and kind of made me want to cry. I take my cooking very seriously, ya'll.
I did go to the grocery and I bought the only thing that sounded good. Sun-bird beef and broccoli seasoning. Yup. And then I decided I was going to totally wing it.
So, here we go. Chicken Lo Mein
Here's what you need:
*sun-bird beef and broccoli seasoning
*various veggies (I had mushrooms, cabbage, onions and red peppers)
Here's what you do
*make a marinade from the garlic, rice vinegar, soy sauce and worcestershire sauce, and water. Cut your chicken into small pieces and throw into a ziploc bag with the marinade.
After an hour....
Warm up some olive oil. Drain most of the marinade, and dump the chicken and a bit of the marinade into your skillet. Let your chicken brown.
Chop up your various veggies.
